Passengers deal with Gatwick disruption after drone sightings
Many full of praise for airport staff amid flight cancellations and delays
Though unusually busy, the atmosphere at Gatwick’s south terminal was relatively calm on Friday morning. People had arrived well prepared for disruption the day after repeated drone sightings kept the runway closed for 36 hours.
Leigh Wynkoop and her son Paul were among many people to be back at the airport for a second day, in a bid to get home. They were waiting to catch a flight to New York city before traveling on to Durham, North Carolina. The pair first arrived at Gatwick on Thursday morning at around 7am for a morning flight and stayed until about 2pm before giving up and booking themselves into a nearby hotel.
